|Thread: Kit builders, what would you like???|
A 1/6th Hurricane ~ something like the old Mick Reeves job ~ simple to put together but had the right outline. That one looked good from a distance and flew really well too.
|Thread: Flying Styles ?|
I read somewhere that Alex Henshaw barrel rolled a Lancaster on a couple of occasions. The mind boggles...
|Thread: BMFA News - Achievement Scheme Mandatory Questions|
I've been RC flying for near on 25 years and free flight before that. I totally agree with BEB comment above.
|Thread: 2016 RCM&E Autumn Special- Free Plan Modellers Choice|
I never thought about that one, but now it's been mentioned the piston Provost would make a great choice. I for one wouldn't mind seeing this one a s free plan...
An enlargement to your 62 inch Hurricane...something along the lines of the Spit...
|Thread: Ripmax acro wot mk2|
I have an old Irvine 46 swinging a 11/7 prop in mine and standard Futaba 148 servos through out. it flies really well on this engine/prop combo.
|Thread: A daft question regarding control snakes|
The really good thing is that this is the first and only time I've used snakes ~ so all the fitting etc. are the correct 2-56 Sullivan stuff.
I did once witness the outcome of incorrectly matched threads... wasn't pretty.
Thanks to everyone for all of the replies above. I'll try some off them out and see how I get on.
Daft question re snakes…
I’ve been modelling for a number of years, but in all that time I have never used snakes for control runs. For my current project I’m using Gold-N-Rods by Sullivan. So, I’m after any tips on how to screw the threaded rod into the yellow inner cable.
So far, I’ve immersed one end in to hot water which has allowed me to screw the rod in, but is there a better way of achieving this?
|Thread: Acro Wot ARTF (balsa) chat|
I've just recently put one of these in to the air and it has had 15 flights to date. I've balanced slightly to the rear of the recommended balance point and needed around 6 ounces of lead bolted to the engine bearer. All up weight is 5 3/4 pounds and it has a Irvine 46 up front turning a 11/7 prop.
It flies a treat and a mention else where in this thread doesn't like slowing down in light wind conditions. Mind you, I found keeping the nose slight high on approach and maintaining height with the throttle always allows it to slow enough for a smooth landing and short roll out.
In essence it a really nice model to play with and I really like flying it .
|Thread: New TN 70" Spitty|
Just a quick question, do you think a Laser 100 would be man enough for this one?
